"Flensted Mobiles are so designed that the
elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a
harmonic balance." Christian Flensted
Symbolising the five nations of
Scandinavia, these graceful white swans are calm and elegant.
Flat-packed and very light, they would make an ideal gift for posting to
any lover of birds.
At The Scandinavian Shop we love to
celebrate iconic Nordic brands and those traditional crafts which have
made a successful transition into the modern world. Flensted Mobiles is
a perfect example of such a brand. Although the craft of making mobiles
is very much a Danish tradition, the decorative style we see today was
born out of an original design made by Christian and Grethe Flensted for
their first child in 1953. Their design was hugely popular and
eventually grew into a full-time occupation for the couple who then
devoted their entire life to the creation and production of Flensted
Mobiles which have since found worldwide appeal. Sill very much a family
business, new and original designs continue to join a fantastic
collection which ranges from modern abstract designs and special
commissions for museums all over the world, to the simple and colourful
mobiles which have become such popular and much treasured gifts for
"If you have a troubled mind, watch a
mobile and unwind"
